Efficient process control
SpectroBAY® – Process NIR spectrometer system Operating chemical processing plants at their technical and economic optimum not only requires precise, but also real-time information of the composition of materials being processed. Near infra-red (NIR) spectroscopy is the method of choice for simultaneous measurement of the composition of multi-component mixtures. NIR enables accurate end-point determination in chemical reactions as well as control of separation and drying processes. NIR is the basis of real-time process control. It is increasing yields and thereby reducing laboratory effort. SpectroBAY® process NIR spectrometer system is ideally suited for integration into a process control concept, like controlling distillation columns or optimising the operation of continuous and batch production units. The whole integration process is covered, from pre-study over engineering to inspection and maintenance. Specialists are available to create the chemical model and specify the system in order to cut laboratory cost and speed up the production unit.
Performance booster Online-monitoring with SpectroBAY enables online-control in a wide variety of applications. Whether the yield, the quality of your product or both, SpectroBAY® will increase the plant performance. ®
